of hill rei are and tbil. here on page 153. bill clinton displayed his inability to come clean about personal issues that were core of his identity. sometimes he outright lied often he shaded the truth. often he seemed to construct events that work to his own benefit. i happened to at yale as a undergraduate when they were in law school. one wonders about the attraction and one reads the second bit can is about ken star interviewing hillary clinton. i can tell you a story about ken who i had dinner with at precisely this time. i won't. it would go on too long. he determined he did not have evidence to indict hillary clinton. the examples of ingenious cases. something perhaps illegal had taken place in arkansas with the first lady much more with her husband at the heart of it. indian the attraction the clintons had for each other.

[crowd chanting "obama"] >> thank you. thank you. my fellow citizens, i stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors. i thank president bush for his service to our nation, as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition. 44 americans have now taken the presidential oath. the words have been spoken during rising tides of prosperity and the still waters of peace. yet, every so often, the oath is taken amidst gathering clouds and raging storms. at these moments, america has carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high office, but because we the people have remained faithful to the ideals of our forbearers, and true to our founding documents. so it has been, so it must be with this generation of americans. that we are in the midst of crisis is now well understood. our nation is at war, again
in politics by bill clinton and the others, it has to clear this fella here. he clearly seems to want to run. he has that strong debate performance in the fall against paul ryan. and he got that fiscal cliff agreement going lafment month. and then he took on the lead on the gun control proposal. so do both of them run, listen to what biden told our colleague, deploria borger, this week about -- gloria borger, this week about running. >> i haven't made that judgment and hillary hasn't made that judgment but i can tell you what. everything that should be done over the next two years that i should be part of would have to be done whether i run or i don't run. chris: is that what he's like when you grab him at the white house and get ahead of him and talk -- >> that's who he is. the fact of the matter is he wants to run. he's right about this from what i understand in my reporting and knows beating hillary in a primary is near impossible and he's not going to drag out and have this big long primary fight. if hillary decides to run he'll look at it for a while and quietly back out. chris: how do
is that a child like bill clinton begins to feel like he has the responsibility of bringing healing to that family, of redeeming it, of creating honor where there's dishonor. and he's so, he basically sets out to be the person who's going to rescue and redeem the family. he is an incredible student. he's front of his class. he becomes very active in boys' nation which is kind of a junior american legion. gets nominated to go to washington as the quote-unquote boys' nation candidate for u.s. senate. goes to washington. he's already six feet tall. he strides to the front of the line when they go to the white house to see president kennedy, and then when kennedy finishes his speech, bill clinton lopes forward and gets his picture taken with, alongside of john f. kennedy. he's so proud. he's so proud. and he already is dedicate today the idea that he is -- dedicated to the idea that he is going to be the person who is going to bring complete honor to the family. he already, by the age of 17, is planning to be elected attorney general of arkansas, then governor of arkansas and then president of the uni
. that's behind us. that turkey's behind us. >> we got others. >> we have lived through bill clinton. whatever you say about bill clinton, he knew how to deal with these people saying shut down the government. go ahead. i'll have my pizza. you go ahead. >> he'll have other things. >> whatever else you say. what happened? newt looked like a fool. he looked like a fool. so can this president show that kind of guts? first you because you're for him. >> well, i think we're going to see the debt ceiling fight first. >> that's what i mean. >> he feels so passionately -- >> will he tell them to go guest lost? >> in the book i had out last year -- >> what's the name of the book? >> "showdown." the first time he got in his aides said you may have to cut a deal. he said no way. it's not just my presidency, it's future presidencies. we can't let congress hold the white house hostage by not paying their own bills. >> his bills. >> no, listen. >> why didn't he do it? >> well, actually, he did. instead of accepting a six-month extension, he got a year and a half. now he's not going to go back and
question there is which clinton governor? which clinton is he talking about? hillary or bill? >> chelsea. >> and is that an ironic statement gin as i don't know jonathan alter pointed out, this is a dude that basically nails the nails in the coffin on erskine bowles. >> hypocrisy reigns. this is true. he is talking about bill clinton, and is he talking about erskine bowles as chief of staff to bill clinton. you are absolutely right. paul ryan could have delivered erskine bowles and could have made it difficult for the president to walk away, but he gave the president -- >> this is a weird obsession with trying to, like, play the clintons off of the obamas, and republicans love doing this. the idea that they would have been, you know, kind to bill clinton or hillary clinton had they been president is laughable. >> all the guys saying this, so many of them voted. for impeachment. he would have solved the debt kritsdz. >> they'll be all over him. >> in 2008 hillary knew that, and she used to hammer obama on this. she would say they're not going to be nice to you just because you talk about
in 1993 the 46-year-old bill clinton took the oath of office for the first time. he became the first baby boomer in the white house and told the country that change is not something to fear. >> when our founders boldly declared america's independence to the world and our purposes to the almighty, they knew that america to endure would have to change. not change for change's sake, but change to preserve america's ideals, life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness. though we march to the music of our time, our mission is timeless. each generation of americans must define what it means to be an american. >> well, bill clinton, who had a history of being long-winded, went on to deliver what aides said was the third shortest inaugural address in american history. we'll be right back. both of us actually. our pharmacist recommended it. and that makes me feel pretty good about it. and then i heard about a study looking at multivitamins and the long term health benefits. and what do you know? they used centrum silver in the study. makes me feel even better, that's what i take. sorry, we take.

obama was bill clinton. >> people ask me all the time how we got four surplus budgets in a row. what new ideas did we bring to washington? i always give a one-word answer. arithmetic. [ applause ] >> arithmetic. we simply cannot afford to give the reins of government to someone who will double down on trickle-down. >> bill clinton gave a stem winder of a speech at that convention. he spoke for 48 long detailed minutes. he made a stronger case for president obama's reelection than he had ever made before. and in that process, he achieved the unlikely feat of winning over even a number of his long-time political adversaries. after that very well received speech, republicans came out to proclaim their previously secret inner bill clinton love saying oh, yeah, bill clinton, i miss him. now that was a guy we republicans could work with, as opposed to this horrible barack obama who we can't work with at all. the romney campaign put out a statement after that speech saying, quote, bill clinton worked with republicans. barack obama has not worked across the aisle. bill clinton's long-time nemesi
, it's about 18, 18 1/2, and it's popped up under bill clinton's presidency above 20%, if you have economic growth. the 16% is because the growth-- >> their policies are going to guarantee, in my opinion, 2% growth for a long period of time. they will never get tax revenue back up towards 20%. >> paul: kim, let's talk about another tax that's on the table. dick durbin, the number two democrat in the senate this week said raise the prospect of an energy tax in addition to this and this reflects part of the point that mary made, you can go after the rich under the current tax, but you can't begin to finance the government we have. so ultimately you've got to find new ways to get the revenue. is this energy tax actually going to be a live prospect in the next couple of years? >> oh, they're going to try it and i think we all owe dick durbin a degree of thanks for what they want to do. mary says you can go after everybody who is rich, you can't get it, you have to go up through the middle class. the problem for democrats they vowed they're not going to raise income taxes on the middle
in the way the modern president does. it happened to ronald reagan, it happened to bill clinton, george bush. and that is, obama fatigues. three years from now, people will be writing columns about obama fatigue, just as they did about clinton fatigue and bush fatigue and reagan fatigue. franklin roosevelt only gave 30 fireside chats in 12 years. he understood instinctively the dangers of overexposure. he also controlled the media to an extent that modern presidents could not hope to. host: looking back, fdr broke the unwritten code of serving more than two terms. wetoday's modern age, could have more than two terms for any president? you worked for ronald reagan. if his health was better, of third term? guest: i doubt it. he talked about it after he left office. he was going to campaign for appeal of that amendment. he thought the american people should be able to vote for anyone wanted to vote for. it is very difficult to imagine after eight years of office -- we've used up our presidents. that is why this string of two- term presidents is really so unusual. we have a string of one-term pr
the weekend. if bill clinton was still president, we would be done dealing with the financial mess that we are in. connell: researchers are taking what is a controversial step of a new strain of the bird flu. much more still to come on markets now. let's take a look at some of the winners on the s&p 500. ♪ dagen: congressman paul ryan says if bill clinton was still in the white house, we would already be done dealing with this financial mess. black rock jumping in and buying a stake in twitter. controversy over research that would enable the bird flu to be transmitted from person to person. we will dig into that. connell: as we do every 15 minutes, let's go to the new york stock exchange. nicole petallides looking at caterpillar. nicole: worth about 15 positive dow points. it is up 2.2% right now. very busy here for caterpillar. they did have a tough quarter. tough economy. they did have a lot of inventory that they try to cut into a little bit. that outlook here seems to be a little bit better. they are on strategy and keeping online. that is good news for caterpillar. right now, the do
and bill clinton. lincoln as its successful -- special case and that his second term was so brief. the it is interesting to note that only the president who had a more successful second term than their first was james madison and andrew jackson. the following is an accounting of the presidents elected to a second term, and the reasons for those that have experienced failed or troubled second terms. for failed because of a war that seemed unwinnable, or for lack of preparedness. jefferson, truman, johnson and bush were the four. also, for failed because of economic crisis for failure to act to deter such a crisis. these were jefferson, cleveland, coolidge, franklin roosevelt from the 37 downturn, and george bush. at failed due to their inability to lead congress were jefferson, monroe, grants, wilson, truman, johnson, nixon and bush. to failed due to hubris, franklin roosevelt, and richard nixon are the four who did not effectively communicate their agendas or initiatives were jefferson, monroe, grant in cleveland. obviously, the dominant source of failure for second term president
the clinton years. so right, bill clinton was president. 1996 he was running for reelection. and in late august, that would mean we're getting close to labor day, which means it's getting to be time for the conventions. august 29th, 1996. here was on that date the white house press briefing. peter knight, the national campaign manage over the clinton/gore campaign, and leon panetta, who was white house chief of staff at the time. now he is secretary of defense. but then he was bill clinton's white house chief of staff. and on this date, on august 29th, 1996 in american politics, leon panetta was white house chief of staff. and that night his boss, bill clinton, was due to give his big speech, his speech at the democratic convention, accepting his party's nomination to be reelected president of the united states. huge day for the clinton white house, right? and on that date at the white house press briefing, seven of the first ten questions that leon panetta and company got asked by the press were not about president clinton and his big night. the press was totally distracted from that th
by what's going on right now. >> as with ronald reagan and bill clinton, the second terms, you can see a few green sheets of the economy and if that begins to surge, david axelrod tells me later in the show, has a real chance. >> he has a huge agenda, a lot of opportunities and going to have to find a way to work with republicans not only in the senate but the house of representatives. let's see if he can do it. it's a huge, huge challenge and the responsibility is enormous, the opportunity is great. >> well, we have to see and itching to get to the party, wolf. >> love those people back there. did you hear the marching band? >> you know why i think they're so excited? your performance in skyfall. >> you were in "flight." >> that's why i wanted to mention it. >> i was in the james bond film. and you were in -- >> really great. really great for me. >> if you work really hard and play by the rules, some day maybe daniel craig and -- >> was it daniel craig or denzel washington oscar nominated? >> i don't know. >> it was denzel. do you know who helped him? me. >> let me point out. $1 billi
. bush came hoping to change the environment. bill clinton came thinking he could change it. the last person who began to sense there were greater possibilities was reagan, that was almost a different political age. >> you also think about, had the clintons and how bill clinton -- he seemed to revel in politics, the reaching out to people. in the article, i found it fascinating that the obamas haven't had bill and hillary clinton over for dinner. i -- i mean, she's -- all the things that bill clinton did during the campaign, all the work that hillary clinton's done, they've never had a dinner with them at the white house? >> i think this is something outsiders find confusing. the obamas can be vivacious, charming they have great public personalities. what people in washington see -- but people all over the country don't see, is that there's an introversion there, the obamas said both when the president became famous in 2004 and again when they came to washington, no new friends, which is the opposite of what we expect from politicians. they generally succeed by making everybody their
. and some must-see tv. bill clinton kicks the door wide open for a hillary clinton campaign in 2016 and he makes a direct appeal, saying her health is not an issue and that he'll support whatever she decides. good morning from washington. it's wednesday, january 16th, 2013. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's get right to my first reads of the morning. and it begins with guns. today the president will unveil what one gun control activist characterized nbc news as the most sweeping gun control measures proposed since right after the assassinations of bobby kennedy and mlk back in 1968. the president is going bold, fulfilling a promise he made one month ago in newtown, connecticut. >> are we really prepared to say that we're powerless in the face of such carnage? that the politics are too hard? >> the white house thinks it's better to go for broke than to lose doing something more minimalist. the president's proposals will include a combination of plans he'll ask congress to consider, but also a number of actions he can take without congress. sources familiar with the presiden
must define what it means to be an american. >> well, bill clinton, who had a history of being long-winded, went on to deliver what aides said was the third shortest inaugural address in american history. we'll be right back. absorb calcium, caltrate's double the d. it now has more than any other brand to help maximize calcium absorption. so caltrate women can move the world. >>> welcome back to "hardball." in his final press conference of his first presidential term president obama went on offense warning republicans not to play politics with the debt ceiling. here is some of what he had to say. >> raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending. it simply allows the country to pay for spending that congress has already committed to. if congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on time, social security checks and veterans' benefits will be delayed. we might not be able to pay our troops our honor our contracts with small business owners. markets could go haywire, interest rates would spike for anybody who borrows money, every home own we are a mortgage. it w
's birthday. >>> plus, bill clinton and steven spielberg's big secret. we will reveal that for you next. you're watching "early today." >>> good morning and welcome back. another chilly morning in california. l.a. starting off at 39 degrees but you're almost done with that really cool air you've been dealing with. temperatures in seattle and portland in mid-30s right now. we'll top out in the 30s. watch out for freezing fog in the pacific northwest. especially across the coast of oregon. and then it is going to be sunny right down into california. temperatures today in the 50s and 60s. tomorrow's even better. we should inch closer to 70 degrees in l.a. much needed warm air for that area. they couldn't really handle the cold air, the orange crops and everything, it's been brutal. >> when i lived there, i couldn't stand it when it went below 50 degrees. thanks a lot. >>> >>> well, it looks like tina fey and amy poehler may have a new annual gig. the hosting pair scored the highest ratings for the golden globes since 2007, now, the pressure is on first time oscar host seth macfarlane who said,
is such that they don't need to the way that bill clinton did losing conservative voters, particularly swing voters anymore, because they have a new coalition and that's driving the president to say, look, we can satisfy these long-term pentup liberal demands and you see that as true? >> i would argue that that analysis is probably the best way of looking at this president and understanding what he's doing. democratic presidents in the past, you've looked at bill clinton, they understood and they believed there was a real benefit to being somewhat in the middle, centrist and working with republicans and getting things done and getting that vast bipartisan approval quotient. his presidee that, but he believes he has what it takes to have the democrats in office with a liberal majority and that brings up a huge question how sincere he is over the next two years about some of the item agenda, agenda items he's put forward like immigration, or whether this is about taking issues making republicans look like they're disunited and unable to govern and route them out of the house in 2014 and have everyon
like bill clinton decides to feel like he has the response of the day responsibility of regaining it with dishonor and so he basically sets out to be the person that is going to redeem the family. he's an incredible student, the front of his class, she becomes very active in the boys' nation which is a junior american legion, gets nominated to go to washington as the candidate for u.s. senate. goes to washington. he's already 6 feet tall. he strives to the front of the line when they go to the white house to see president kennedy. and then when kennedy finishes his speech, bill clinton looks forward and get his picture taken alongside john f. kennedy. he is so proud. he's so proud and he is already dedicated to the idea that he is going to be the person that is going to during complete honor to his family. by the age of 17 he's planning to be elected the attorney general of arkansas, then the governor of arkansas and president of the united states. this is something that everyone who knows him knows about and they talk about all the time. it's not from the university of arkansas,
experienced. bill clinton came thinking he could change it. the last person who really began to sense there were greater possibilities was reagan. that was almost a different political age. >> you also think about how the clintons and how bill clinton. he seemed to revel in politics. they haven't had bill and hillary over for dinner. they've never had a dinner. >> i think this is something outsiders find difficult. they can be charming. they have great public personalities. what people in washington see but i think people all over the country don't see it if there's an introversion there. there's a self-protectedness. the obamas said both when the president became famous in 2004 and when they came to washington, no new friends which is the opposite of what we expect from politicians. politicians generally succeed by making everybody they friend. >> some people like to be president because they really enjoy the office. other people relish power and exercising power. >> is it true that president obama after meeting with some people he likes down time by himself? >> absolutely. if we're

at one point. >> when he spoke at the democratic national convention, former president bill clinton brought the house down. this was one of the great speeches, ever, i think. it made the case for reelecting president obama in a way the candidate himself never got able to do, even to the end. let's listen to big bill at his best. >> are we better off than we were when he talk office? then, listen to this. listen to this. everybody's forgotten. everybody's forgotten when president barack obama took office, the economy was in free fall, it had just shrunk nine full percent in gdp. we were losing 750,000 jobs a month. are we doing better than that today? the answer is yes. >> you know, i was thinking back to the fairy tale remark. the guy's showman ship with the gesticulation, the hands, the whole dinism the way he presents this case. >> earlier this year, i wrote oh, who needs conventions what are they for, anyway? they're for moments like that. i was on the floor at that moment. it was one of the most memorable things i've seen live in a hall or anywhere. that was bill clinton at the
. for example, bill clinton was not the first, and bill clinton was not the worst when it came to his behavior and high office. there is a long, long history of it. spitzer, a schwarzenegger, john edwards, these guys demint david patraeus, they have nothing on alexander hamilton. will we find is if you read, for example, letters written by martha washington during this winter camps, she was tough, like a soldier. she did not complain about the weather, the market -- harsh conditions, but she did complain. there was a tomcat when winter that was this be having with the lady cats, and it was noisy, noisy, noisy, and it kept her awake at night. so the tomcat and alexander hamilton because of all the and girls. i also did a book a few years ago, life and the white house, and it was about the president's at ease. what to the eat? what hobbies to they have? what are their fears and hopes and what they like as fathers and husbands to mecca the kids turn out. another way of addressing presidential character providing us with another lens. for example, we are still trying to figure out dick nixon. well
. we saw that before with newt gingrich and bill clinton. and in clinton's second term, they did actually get stuff done. they worked it out between them. but does the president have that kind of relationship with john boehner, say, where we can feel optimistic that they're going to have a very different kind of relationship but can actually be more effective? >> i think there's a different kind of dynamic that speaker boehner has to deal with. i don't know him personally, but his reputation is that he can get deals done, but then he has to sell them in a caucus, some whom, a minority, but a vocal minority of whom are very rigid indeed. so i think the speaker has an opportunity to show his more magnanimous leadership and to lead the whole of the house, and not just his caucus. and as he does that, i think his relationship, not just with the president, but with the general public will improve, and i hope it does. >> one of the issues he's going to face is gun crime, gun control, gun violence, generally. he's been generally audacious in terms of the proposals he's put forward. ther
national convention, former president bill clinton brought the house down. this was one of the greatest speeches ever, i think. let's listen to big bill at his best. >> are we better off than we were when he took office? listen to this. when president barack obama took office, the economy was in free fall, it had just shrunk to 9% gdp. we were losing 750,000 jobs are month. are we doing better than that today? the answer is yes. >> the whole dynamism. >> earlier this year, i wrote oh, who needs conventions. what are they for, anyway? they're for moments like that. i was on the floor for that moment. and it was one of the most memorable things i've seen live in a hall or anywhere. that was bill clinton at the summation of his career. that was everything he had learned about showmanship, about telling a story. and about how to make a case for the president. he made it so sitly, so clearly, so logically. you wonder why barack obama couldn't do it. and that's probably because the kind of case he had to make, somebody other than the president had to make. if the president himself says, you k
